UK-based brewery Brewdog announced on Monday it is extending its DogHouse and sour beer facility crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. The initiative was launched last month and sought to raise $75,000 for the project, which will be located next to the brewery’s Columbus, Ohio location.
As previously reported, BrewDog stated the DogHouse is the first crowdfunded craft beer hotel and will be attached to the sour beer facility. The hotel will feature include beer themed rooms, punk jacuzzi, shower beer fridges, a spa that will have malted barley massages and hop face masks. The brewery revealed:
“We want to create the top craft beer destination on the planet. Our brewery in Ellon, Scotland has become a destination for craft beer fans across Europe, and we want to build an even more amazing beer destination stateside. With The DogHouse focused on amazing craft beer from BrewDog and our favourite breweries worldwide, we’re creating the ideal environment in which to immerse yourself in the ultimate beery weekend.”
In the recent update, BrewDog shared more details about the Indiegogo campaign extension:
“Ever since we announced our partnership with the amazing guys at Indiegogo on a campaign to construct the world’s first crowdfunded craft beer hotel we have been blown away by the response it has generated. We were due to bring the campaign to a close but with so much interest in our fifty-room palace of craft beer in Columbus, we have decided to extend the deadline for investment in The DogHouse for another month (and we may dial in a few more extra perks to boot). The last time we detailed how the campaign was progressing, it was to reveal the chance to top the building with a kick-ass rooftop resident’s bar if we hit the $200k mark. That milestone has been well and truly exceeded so anybody in the Columbus area who loves the idea of drinking super-fresh BrewDog beer and a range of brand-new sours in the Ohioan sunshine your dreams are a step closer to becoming a reality!”
The brewery went on to add:
“The DogHouse Columbus has one simple aim – to be the best beer-orientated hotel in the world. With that squarely in mind it will feature en-suite rooms with shower-beer fridges, Punk IPA on tap in every room and fully stocked minibars to ensure you are never more than a relaxed reach of the arm from a cool craft beer. Plus with a restaurant offering a range of mouth-watering dishes paired to beer (and featuring beer as an ingredient) there’s no reason to ever want to check out.”
Currently, the campaign has successfully secured nearly $285,000 from more than 1860 backers. It is set to close in May.
